Manchester United got back to winning ways with a 4-1 victory at Newcastle United, courtesy of an ambitious comeback.
Manchester United mounted an inspirational comeback to win 4-1 at Newcastle. The Red Devils picked up all three points in the Premier League for just the second time this season but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would certainly be a happy man given that his side visits Paris Saint-Germain during the Champions League fixture during the week.
Luke Shaw’s own goal on the second minute gave Newcastle United the lead. A few minutes later, Bruno Fernandes had a goal disallowed for offside before Harry Maguire struck an equalizer with a great header. The former Sporting Lisbon midfielder missed a penalty in the second half but scored the winner later on.
Here is a look at the three talking points from the fixture.
MANCHESTER UNITED PLAYED LIKE THEY MUST
Manchester United’s attitude in recent months has come under the scanner. Their defeat to Tottenham by a thumping 6-1 margin called upon several individual players in question, but the club as a whole did manage to turn a corner in the first match following the international break.
Solskjaer’s men played incredibly well and showed the grit and passion which is needed for a club like the Red Devils. Having said that, this was also a commanding and morale-boosting win before the start of the Champions League and a run of difficult fixtures which always includes the visit of Chelsea to the Old Trafford next weekend.
